Today in Bergen, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg officially opened the impressive AdO arena svimming facility, named after Alexander Dale Oen.

Solberg mentioned Alex in her opening speech: ‘A person is missing here today. Norway’s undisputed top swimmer who passed away far too early, barely 27 years old. A great athlete, arguably one of the greatest.’
